Our August membership meeting will be next Monday 08/16/21 at 8:30pm.
In addition to our monthly Finances and Executive Board reports we will hear an update from the Elections Committee about the upcoming vacancy election of stewards and officers in our Local, and discuss ongoing issues faced by our International colleagues with COVID-19 travel restrictions, the vaccination requirement of Columbia for all employees (see below), and an opportunity to work with other unionized workers in academia to improve higher education, by supporting the Higher Ed Labor Summit vision statement.
As a reminder, to conduct discussions and votes in an orderly manner at our membership meetings, we follow the parliamentary procedure used in most Local Unions and community organization meetings outlined in Robert’s Rules of Order. You can find a cheat sheet with the most commonly used rules here. If you have any questions about how to use these rules during the meeting, always feel free to ask. As a new local union, we are all learning together and there are no wrong questions.
